Lock Table Problems

Posted 06-29-2010 at 11:23 AM by ubikuberalles

Here's one that happens to me from time to time:

rpmdb: Lock table is out of available locker entries

This error happens when running the RPM command, either directly or through another program.

The solution:

1. rm /var/lib/rpm/__db.00*
2. rpm --rebuilddb
3. Confirm the RPM command is working again:
rpm -qa | sort

Easy peasy.

Linux Notes

Posted 06-15-2010 at 07:11 PM by ubikuberalles

I've decided to use this blog for on-line Linux notes.

I forget things. Details mostly. Like what command to type when I want to set up an encrypted partition and so on. So I write it down on a notebook. That notebook has been very useful to me over the years and I keep it up to date when I can.

It occurred to me today that perhaps I should have have an on-line version of that notebook. It would certainly help me out when I'm away from my desk and forget my paper notebook...
